NGR :- SJ28575529 (SJ25NE)
Unitary authority :- Flintshire
Community :- Llanfynydd
Prefered site type :- 20th century - Geophysics (Event - )

A vast quantity of Roman finds and building evidence has arisen from this village over the last four centuries. The settlement is probably civil although the quantity of XXth Legion tiles suggest a military connection.

Geophysical survey of the playing field in 1987 suggested the presence of a row of structures aligned E-W. Other survey was also undertaken in the surrounding landscape (PRN 88738) (Frere, S S, 1988, pp416).
